Well I picked up this freshy barreled AV action Sako from a fellow on Saturday & thought I'd post a picture or 2.
This rifle was supposed to be for my Dad, but now after getting it all back together & the barrel channel fitting properly, I am not so sure I want to give it to him anymore? :confused:
Here are all the details:
Sako AV Magnum action
S/S Matte finish 7mm Rem Mag Sako profiled Ted Gaillard barrel finished @ 24 1/4" with recessed crown.
Sako Hunter Wood stock @ 13.5 LOP. I do have a McMillan in the closet I am considering putting on instead?
Trigger set to 3lbs.
After Market detachable 3+1 round magazine.
Leupold rings & mounts.
Leupold Vari-X III 3.5x10x40mm gloss duplex.
Reloading begins tomorrow. 140gr Nosler pills to start with.
This rifle came to me as a 22" 7mm when I got it. It shot fine but had a bulge in the barrel about half way down the pipe. Copper fouling was terrible, so I opted for one of Ted's fine replacements.
Range Report to follow.
